If your small business is becoming more and more successful, you’ll need to hire more staff and, ultimately, move into a bigger office to accommodate them. If you’ve got a lot of equipment and important documents to take with you, it can be daunting to say the least. Read on to discover some tips and tricks on how to make your office move as seamless as possible.
Of course, planning your move is imperative to the success of it. So, once you know where you’ll be moving, it’s important to measure it accurately with a detailed floorplan of the new space.
This allows you to understand the best seating plan to implement as well as where the new storage space can go. This will then inform you of what new furniture you can buy and plan for further growth with this new space in mind.
It’s important that all of the members of the team have an understanding of what’s happening and when. However, it’s also an idea to get them to help. Perhaps offer overtime to assist with the packing and moving and set up meetings to allow them to have a stake in the forthcoming relocation.
Getting your employees involved makes sure that they’re all happy and feel invested in the growth of the business. This can help to improve employee retention and morale throughout the workforce if done correctly. By leaving your staff in the dark, it’s likely to have the opposite effect.
Finally, always use a removal company with a great track record within commercial removals. Similarly, utilise the services of a storage facility. It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to move everything at once and it might be necessary to close the business for a short amount of time to make sure everything is up and running as soon as possible on the other end. During this time, some important documents or equipment can be stored over a brief period of time so that the move can be completed in stages rather than having the pressure of having to do it all in one go.
As opposed with a residential move, there’s so much more to think about when moving an entire business operation. To help you navigate that process and make your life easier, we have a number of large units available to help store any equipment and documents you need before the move is complete.
We have eight locations across the North West of England and can provide packing equipment as well as a free van and driver for customers within a ten-mile radius.
